The Century Club of California has many of the resources which are needed for most types of events. We can also provide you with recommendations of professional musicians, caterers, florists, etc., who have worked successfully on events in our club. Our onsite manager will be available to assist you as you plan your event.
You may rent individual rooms or the entire building for up to 8 hours. The cost of rental varies by the space needed to suit the size and type of events. Typical events which can be held are dinners, luncheons, buffets, weddings, wedding receptions, meetings, lectures, concerts, holiday parties, memorials, and receptions.
The rental deposit is one-half the rental fee. It secures the reservation and must be paid at the time the contract is executed. We do not accept credit cards.
The security deposit is $750 and is due 60 days prior to the scheduled event. The entire security deposit will be refunded within 10 working days of the event provided there is no damage to the property or premises.
The balance of the rental fee is due 60 days prior to the event. If the balance is not received, the event will be cancelled, and one-half of the rental deposit will be refunded to you. If you cancel the event less than 60 days before the event, The Century Club of California will retain the entire rental amount and return the entire security deposit to you. Any cancellation must be submitted in writing.
